Fake user profile signed up by VOD platform owner

how to i request to delete/remove fake accounts on IMDb? a VOD platform open 400+ accounts and they rate their Titles 10 stars. 

Today,
14-may-2020, this title https://www.imdb.com/title/tt12038280/ rated by 457 users, and reviewed by 406 user. its unbelievable.

I doubt it, how rating and reviews count is very close to?

then i started my investigation, i found that- Voot open 250+ fake imdb account (or hire someone who have/will sign up 250+ imdb accounts), and with those 250+ accounts they rated 10 stars; these titles below - (all are made by voot)

1 month old imdb accounts rate VOOT originals only

illegal - Justice, Out of Order,

Asur: Welcome to Your Dark,

The Raikar Case,

Marzi

and (1 year old imdb accounts rated two movies- Simmba and Veere Di Wedding)

I visited all users profile who rated 10 star, they (mostly) are IMDb Member since 1 month (these accounts are open for rate VOOT originals)

and some users are imdb member since 1 year, 4 months (these accounts are open when released Simmba, rated Simmba and all VOOT originals)

and some users are imdb member since 1 year, 11 months (these accounts are open when released Veere Di Wedding, rated Veere Di Wedding and all VOOT originals)

and very few users are imdb member since 2 year, 2 months. (they also rated 6 titles above)

Hi there,

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
                                       
Our voting system already detects and defeats attempts to stuff the ballot and skew the rating, as demonstrated by the difference between the weighted average and the arithmetic mean on the vast majority of titles in the database.
                                       
Our voting system is continually improved in this respect so you can rest assured that abuse is always automatically detected and thwarted.
                                       
We hope this addresses your concerns. Thank you for your support.
